The Tracy W. McGregor Library Endowed Fund was created to provide for future growth in the Tracy W. McGregor Library of American History, a notable collection of books and manuscripts and one of the cornerstones of the University of Virginia special collections. Assembled by Detroit philanthropist Tracy W. McGregor (1869–1936), the McGregor Library was donated to UVA in 1938 by the trustees of the McGregor Fund. The McGregor Room in Alderman Library was built to house the collection, which was moved when the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library opened in 2004.
